25 years WZR ceramic solutions GmbH

For our birthday celebration we held a symposium where we were able to show the whole range of ceramics at WZR. From energy technology to refractories to dental ceramics, from structural ceramics to membrane reactors to an overview lecture 25 years of WZR.

  • Dr. Holger Grote, Siemens Energy The Siemens Energy Green Radar: Status – Outlook and Examples of Material Developments
  • Dr. Alexander Platzer, RHI Magnesita Additive manufacturing and refractory: how do they fit together?
  • Dr. Armin Kirsten, VITA Zahnfabrik Additive manufacturing of dental ceramics – potentials and obstacles
  • Dr. Jens Schneider, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar Ceramic Solutions – innovative solutions for building materials development
  • Prof. Dr. Willi Meulenberg, Forschungszentrum Jülich Ceramic membranes for the production of chemical energy carriers
  • Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kollenberg, WZR ceramic solutions GmbH WZR – 25 years of R&D

Our guests were then able to visit the facilities at WZR and discuss questions with our colleagues at the machines.

Many thanks to our cooperation partners:

  • Beckman Coulter, Inc.
  • Bruker Corporation
  • Carbolite Gero GmbH & Co. KG
  • Concr3de
  • Glatt GmbH
  • JEOL GmbH
  • Koenig & Bauer Coding GmbH
  • Struers GmbH
  • voxeljet AG

who supported our in-house exhibition with equipment and personnel.

Finally, we bid farewell to our company founder Wolfgang Kollenberg in his well-deserved retirement and symbolically handed over the company key to Dieter Nikolay.

Many thanks for the numerous visitors and exhibitors. All participants found that it was an all-round successful festival.

How to VPP?

2023 has been an eventful year at WZR ceramic solutions – mainly because of the new 3d printer. With the CeraFab S65 (VPP-printer) from Lithoz we got a new AM method in our house, whose potential is used to the fullest for our public funded project Redox3D.

Porous ceramics and how to use them right

Besides the determination of strength, the determination of open porosity and bulk density is the most common analysis we perform in-house – and also one of the simplest. Nevertheless, it is one of the most important test methods for characterising a sample (sometimes even non-destructively). This is because conclusions about other physical properties can be drawn directly from the open porosity.
